I was employed for three years by Dartmouth College to teach fellow undergraduates writing, and I have tutored numerous students of all ages in French, German, English, and Hebrew.

Hello!

My name is Melissa, and I'm an experienced tutor of English, foreign languages (German, French, and Biblical/Rabbinic Hebrew), and Writing, as well as SAT/ACT/GRE prep. I was employed for three years by Dartmouth College to teach fellow undergraduates writing, and I have tutored numerous students of all ages in French, German, English, and Hebrew. (I am an American, but I have had experience living abroad in Berlin, Paris, and Jerusalem.)I believe I'm an effective teacher of language partly because of the degree to which it excites me; my passion for the subject is contagious. I worked for over a year in the Boston area as an educational consultant, and in this capacity I taught classes on college admissions to visiting Chinese students; I recently graduated from Harvard Divinity School with my Masters of Divinity, and have since taught elementary and middle school in Taiwan for a year. This year I will be beginning a PsyD in Clinical Psychology at California Lutheran University.

This is one dynamite tutor!

Melissa worked on many of the holes I have with French. She caught my usage of a Spanish verb, instead of a French one, and gently corrected it. She covered many subjects and gave ample encouragement. Thanks, Melissa. I can't wait until the next session.
